We all seem to know and love their site, but what I want to know is. They have a number of Kung-Fu type films but they never seem to make it onto the archive.
Is this because nobody has uploaded them or is the archive not sure about the copyrites of those type of film?
I have a few on DVD I wanna upload but don't want to take the time if they are going to just be taken down.

Also, I have seen a few post about ratings on mp4 files.
I would rate a film on the film not its format, but I like to see my DLs on my TV not the computer. So I would not be able to check those films out as I would not be likly to ever see them. Why upload in a format that is a pain to convert and is poor when you do? I try to understand, but don't sorry.

Divx is the way to go, in my humble view. This format works great on MVIX, computers, and TVs, with generally good to excellent rendering (also depending on the original quality, of course), and the file(s) are of reasonable size for downloading.

I frequently download mp4 files, as one of the computers I use is a Mac, and iDVD converts them pretty well. They're also typically a lot smaller than DivX files, so the banddwidth isn't so onerous.

I agree, the purpose of MP4 is streaming video. It can also be used for iPod-type media players, but it is not intended for large-screen displays. The quality of the Feature Films downloads has diminished some as these have become more popular. If people want to reduce upload time, DivX is widely supported and has better results in the conversion.
